Overall Score4.0/ 5
When you enter the lobby – you are reminded of a mountain resort with the view of the beautiful Chocolate Lake, fireplace and relaxing furniture. The hotel is pet friendly as you already know when you enter the lobby as you get greeted by a cute Chocolate lab named Aero – the hotel ambassador. Even if the hotel is 10 minutes outside of the city – it still has easy access and the great lake location is worth it. The hotel offers include indoor pool, fitness facility and games room. Each stylish and spacious guest room many with lake view features complimentary Wi Fi and free parking. Each room offers a flat screen HD television, tea and coffee maker, mini fridge, iron with board, hair dryer. In a separate wing efficiency rooms with half kitchen and outdoor entrance offer a great option and dog owners. The hotel just received an Award for clean rooms. The Lakeside Bar and Grill is nicely renovated and offers beautiful view of the lake and is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner featuring classic dishes with a modern twist. For your next corporate retreat, meeting, banquet, or conference in Halifax, Nova Scotia – the hotel offers several conference rooms including stylish ballroom with lake view.
